Step 1: Create Classes

Immediately after signing up, teachers are prompted to create their first class, and creating classes on ReadTheory has never been easier. We provide a four-step process by which you can create classes, manage students and view login information. We realize teachers have limited time to get our program up and running, a fact that has remained in our purview throughout the design process. Check out our youtube video for a visual presentation of our class creation process and more.

Step 2: Take Quizzes

Our program offers over 1,300 premium quality reading comprehension assessments free of charge. Each of our assessments has been crafted with rigor and love by the members of our team, and is designed to teach students to think critically, draw inferences, understand scope and global concepts, find or recall details, and infer the meanings of useful vocabulary words.

Using cutting edge software and carefully crafted and tested content, we provide students with a dynamic reading experience that adapts to their individual ability levels and presents them with a seemingly endless array of skill building exercises. What is more, as students continue to use the site and see their scores gradually improve, our program adapts to match their progress. Our quizzes span the full range, beginning with elementary school reading and ending with the most demanding SAT, ACT, and GRE level reading comprehension questions.

Step 3: Analyze Data

After spending just 20 minutes on our site, students will have accumulated enough data to populate a progress report—a detailed account of their performance on our pretest and subsequent post-tests. Via an array of metrics, charts, and easy-to-understand graphs, we provide teachers the complete visual breakdown. Highlighted in this breakdown is detailed information regarding the strengths and weaknesses students show related to the English Language Arts Common Core State Standards (CCSS) outlined below...

Step 4: Improve Abilities

Our program meets national benchmarks and is aligned with the Common Core. By learning to read, write, and think critically, students are better prepared to perform well on standardized tests, go to college, and achieve success in the real world.

We provide high-quality, engaging content, designed to help students develop the critical skills outlined by national benchmarks and specified by the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Per CCSS guidelines: "With students, parents, and teachers all on the same page and working together toward shared goals, we can ensure that students make progress each year and graduate from high school prepared to succeed in college, career, and life." By using Read Theory, students and teachers alike are apt to accomplish this goal.

"I'm so happy to have found your program. My students have made remarkable progress since we started. What's more, it's free!"
Carson A. - Durham, NC
It's our genuine pleasure to see students and teachers benefiting from our program; your success is our biggest motivator. Our small team of English teachers and software engineers (an unlikely combo, we know) have put our hearts into making this the most helpful ELA platform available. It's so nice to be working away on ReadTheory and receive an email from one of you telling us how you're finding our program. Good, bad, or ugly (hopefully not too ugly), we're happy to learn your feedback. We make changes based on your (yes you!) voice. It's fun to implement features that come as a direct result of teacher feedback.

Oh, and one more thing. If you really think ReadTheory is super-duper, it would be amazing for you to share our program with others. We rely primarily on word-of-mouth to sustain and grow.
